MOUSE THAT ROARED (P. Black '21)
MDB Midseason-Late 7” (18cm)
It may be small, but it has a big impact in a clump. It is another variation on a plicata theme reaching back to ‘Ghost Ship’. It is a luminata but not in the traditional TB style luminatas by having darker fall veins rather than lighter. The upper half of white standards are shaded mid slate purple with butter edges. Startling white styles peak out from between them. Falls have bright yellow throats blended to white then washed light to mid violet to edges. Chlorophyl lines streak alongside beards turning to mid violet and darkening to edges.

NIBBLE (P. Black '21)
SDB Late-Very Late 15.5” (39cm)
With very deliberate intent, I’ve been able to extend the bloom season for SDBs well into the TB season and created stalks with 3 and sometimes 4 branches with 8-14 buds. All this is made possible by keeping foliage short and slightly lengthening branches so all flowers can show without being crowded. It is a new path and look for SDBs that I think gardeners will like. They will be a knockout on the show bench. ‘Nibble’ is a nice muted corn yellow blend with paler fall centers and big mid yellow beards. Three branches carry 9-10 buds.

OUT OF THE ORDINARY (P. Black '21)
IB Spec-X Early-Late 19” (48cm)
'Out of the Ordinary’ has been an important stepping stone toward achieving late blooming, multiple budded and branched SDBs. Its diverse parentage is evidence of the breeding possibilities it provides over the entire bearded spectrum. Palest gray standards are washed pale smoked butter. Dark red purple falls blend lighter toward the edges and are intermittently and narrowly streaked light violet – a hint of broken color. Well-proportioned stalks have 3 branches plus spur and 12-14 buds.

TB Midseason-Late 33” (84cm)
‘Reticulated Ruby’ probably won’t win any beauty contest. It is being introduced mostly for the unique reticulated fall pattern. This is the first time I’ve seen it, although there may be others. Veins normally descend the falls in an open linear fashion. Reticulated Ruby’s veins all interconnected so as to create islands of darker color. The patterning isn’t obvious until the veins lighten as the flower ages. Standards are mid mauve and falls mid garnet with lighter reticulated veining overall. Well-branched stalks have 7-8 buds.
